Here’s just a little insider view to my life as a party stylist: when I get an email of assignments, it’s the best day ever! I love to see what’s in store, whether it’s something I’m super confident and familiar about or something that will take more brainstorming and research. When assigned “Zombie Party”, I was intrigued on the topic, but only a tad bit worried on how to describe this to my girls.
I mean how am I going to dress my dining room in scary zombie decor without scaring my kids. “Why are there blood on those knives, Mommy” was an actual question asked by my 6 year old but luckily neither of them thought much of these displays or were scared by the theme.
I did, however, have fun turning donuts into eyeballs on a fork, making mini cemetery dirt cups and squishing out some pink frosting to become brain cupcakes.
I was also happily paired with Ally or Ally.Bakes on instagram who created these not too creepy royal icing cookies that were delicious!
Each of these Zombie party desserts would offer a yummy treat option for your guests, whether they were looking for something soft, crunchy, cold, chocolaty, or covered in powdered sugar.
(PS these were the mini hands I painted to insert into each dirt cup to make a play on Night of the Living Dead).
Eyeball ping pong balls made the perfect addition to these adult beverages in mini cups!
Don’t forget to step up your decor with a DIY Zombie Bowl! If found this kids toy styling doll of Rapunzel at a local thrift store for $3.99. With the help of Derek’s saw, some paint, and yes, the dress I was baptized in, I was able to turn it into a creepy candy bowl from the beyond!
Which of these Zombie party desserts is your favorite?
